The water temperatures were in the 50’s and the 70 degree warm air was descending upon the marina as the day was awakening. I caught a glimpse of the fog as I walked the pier that morning noticing how it hovered just above the water line. It looked as if it was coming up from the water, like the surface of the water was evaporating and small droplets of water, millions of them were rising from the surface of the water, like miniature tornadoes. I never noticed this before, but then again my life before living on my sailboat was one crisis after another moving me in constant motion but little accomplishment. I felt that as long as I was moving, driving, scurrying about, I was getting stuff done.

Stillness, noticing, watching, observing and remaining peaceful, and mindful of my surroundings is the direct result of a minimalist lifestyle on the sailboat in a marina in Herring Bay which spills out into the Chesapeake Bay.

Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

I decided…’s time…. to take the step…..and just DO it.

Just 14 days ago the opportunity came my way as an open door to a possible life change. What I wanted for so long was now staring me in the face. Do I move forward or do I stay right where I am? I’m sure, dear reader, you’ve had to make the same decision some time in your life.

After much thought, writing down all the pros and cons, and praying for an answer, I woke up yesterday and decided that I would take the plunge and just DO it.

So today I feel overwhelmed with all the things I need to do to make my dream business come to life. The part that always overwhelms me the most is the creation of a website and everything that needs to be on those pages, SEO and content.

This wordpress blog site will work for now and later when mucho dollars are in my account, I can upgrade.

So now I bet you are wondering just what my dream business is?

As a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Myofascial Release (MFR), I enjoy helping as many people as I can become more fluid in their movements, open up stuck spaces, release old emotions that no longer serve them and zap their energy, and create an overall sense of relaxation and a feeling of wellness.

The perfect vehicle appeared in my life which started this whole process of thinking about an untapped market in my community where I can help people who are home-bound, work long hours and have small children at home  which would make it difficult to schedule an appointment and travel for a massage. So now I’m bringing massage to them. Hence the birth of: Mobile Therapeutic Massage. My vehicle is just the right size to carry all my equipment and I  can create a temporary oasis in the comfort of your home for you to receive a therapeutic massage.

How AWESOME is that?????

Can you imagine after a long day at work, or a rather difficult day at home with your small children, a space in your home is created for you with soft mood enhancing music to receive a 60 or 90 minute therapeutic massage? All you need to do is walk from one room into another and receive a massage created just for you addressing the areas in your body that need extra love and attention and then, leaving that room or walking to your resting place for a  deep restful night’s sleep, waking in the morning feeling refreshed and energized.

If you live in Southern Anne Arundel County in Maryland and desire to experience a massage created just for you in the comfort of your home, please call me at 406-291-0354 and schedule an appointment.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Kathy Brokos, LMT
